What is veterinary physiotherapy?
Veterinary physiotherapy incorporates a range of manual or electro therapies to dogs or cats to aid in the healing of many musculoskeletal related issues, helping your four legged friends get back on their feet post injury, post operatively or in a supportive way for degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis. We can also assist in maintenance and upkeep of optimum health for your animal friends and improve performance in our sporting patients.
Combining scientific research with a mindful, caring and holistic approach to treatment for the canine or feline individual, we provide a premium Veterinary Physiotherapy service here at The Small Animal Clinic.
As canine sport popularity is on the rise, alongside modern lifestyles, our four-legged friends regularly require some additional care and attention to ensure they are in tip top condition. Contrary to popular belief, physiotherapy is not exclusively for injured animals or animal athletes.
Every companion can benefit from physiotherapeutic treatment, the aim is not just to improve performance prospects but also improve comfort and aid in reducing the risk of injury.
